Fisher Bullet Pens  -  Are they As Good As they Say?

Let me start with the following thought: Space Pens are just cool. You might’ve had the privilege of using one of these pens. If that’s the case you will also know the experience is unique. If you haven’t tried them yet, you will probably find the following article quite illustrative. At least that’s my hope. And just maybe, you will become another member of the exclusive Space Pen club.

A little bit of background. Fisher pens have been around since the sixties. Paul Fisher designed the universal cartridge in the early 50s, 1953 to be more precise. Not satisfied with this model he continued to develop his design in what would become the nitrogen pressurized cartridge with thixotropic ink, a special kind of semi-solid ink that would change into liquid by the shearing action of the rolling ball.

OK. Now let’s get down to business. Let’s talk about the Fisher Bullet Space Pen. This one was conceived as far as 1948 but it was until 1966 that the nitrogen cartridge was patented. Thus, we could say that it was until that year that the world knew the Bullet Space pen we are familiar with today.

Well, let’s talk about the Bullet Space pen features.

The size. The Bullet pen is really compact when is closed. You can literally carry it anywhere you go. It fits perfectly in pockets, which is a great asset if you are like me and like to take notes everywhere you go. When the pen is open it becomes a full size pen, how cool is that? And that takes me to the next idea.

You can write in any position. Like I said, I like to take notes in a little notepad I carry with me everywhere I go. So, when ideas start boiling in my brain I feel this compelling need to record my thoughts on paper before they fade away in the sands of time. This pen pretty much allows me to do so. I can write leaning over walls. Yeah, on walls. For years I had tried to do so, and pens would just die after five or six words. And not only that, they would stop working forever. This will not happen with a Space pen. Never.

The weight. The Fisher Bullet pen has the right weight. Many pens out there don’t have that necessary balance required to draw a nice smooth stroke.

Temperature and environmental conditions. I think I don’t have to go into a lot of detail about this, I mean, Fisher Bullet Pens are widely known for their outstanding performance in any location. The Fisher nitrogen cartridge will work underwater, in outer space or zero gravity scenarios, and in extreme heat and freezing cold.

Why I like it so much. In practical terms, it works anytime, anywhere. In aesthetic terms, it looks good. Just what I look for in a pen.

In conclusion. Are they as good as they say? Yes, they are. Even better.

The most popular Fisher Bullet Pens designs are the chrome finish, matte black and red cherry.
